It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.

Phoenix Bar Article[edit]

MusicrocksUOW (talk) 08:35, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Hey Brian, talked to David today. Whenever you'd like me to I'm happy to work on the article. If there's any contacts that you'd like me to interview for the story, let me know. I can send you my email address, and I will set up interview questions from there.

I userfied the article. Seemed like a interesting article, especially when I think about some of the silly municipal noise ordinances we've got here. See User:Brian McNeil/Edinburgh music lovers start shouting down 'inaudibility' clause. —Mikemoral♪♫ 08:04, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks, would've helped if I looked here before digging for it myself. However, was passing on a detailed backgrounder to MusicrocksUOW. --Brian McNeil / talk 17:46, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

A new article[edit]

Hi Brian. I am back with a contribution. The address is here. I was for longer time preparing the article, being accurate, and reviewing Wikinews journalistic guidelines, in order to be as close as possible to a final result. I think also it is a very interesting matter. Please review it as soon as your agenda allows it. Thank you.--FiloActual (talk) 16:13, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I see it's now published, nicely done. Always worth a look at the differences between your last contribution and publication, or the edit summaries the reviewer has left on revisions in the "View history" tab of the article. Afraid I was busy most of the weekend, then doing a radio appearance Monday afternoon. --Brian McNeil / talk 17:49, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Much ado about accreditation[edit]

I'm getting a lot of grief, here, because somebody who's never contributed to en.wn requested accreditation and I tried, inarticulately perhaps (judging by the response), to suggest they should do some contribution to Wikinews first. We've now got two other non-Wikinewsies involved, on the request page, and the accreditation page's talk page, and the policy water cooler. I'd appreciate input from you, maybe at the policy water cooler and the request page (I tried to divert discussion from the third place to those two). --Pi zero (talk) 15:26, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

@Pi zero: no grief no stress no problem! I am only considering options and learning about the precedent here.
I would be happy to talk with either of you either on Wikinews or, if it saves time and trouble, by phone or Skype if you email me. I do not want to disrupt any process on Wikinews and wish to go forward acting in accord with Wikinews community precedent, whatever that is. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:08, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
